Eva is a thirty-one-year-old married woman with two children living in Kasese, Uganda. For six years she has been teaching and with her meager salary she has been able to start an apiary project to earn more income. She was inspired into service by the fact that she likes interacting with children.
Inadequate capital poses a challenge to her business plan, while her dream is to become the leading honey supplier in the region. Eva intends to use the loan to buy more beehives so as to have more bees.
